4 Companies with the Best Office Bars

Office culture has changed since the Mad Men era of personal bar carts in every corner office. Mainly, things have gotten more egalitarian and far less Martini-soaked.

But while there’s less office drinking going on in general, there are a lot more office bars. It’s not uncommon to see employees of modern companies pour themselves a brew from the keg when 5 o’clock hits. Some companies, however, take it to the next level. From drinks businesses to real estate offices and everything in between, these are some of the top office bars in America.

The company: An international liquor company that owns Scotch whiskies like The Macallan, The Famous Grouse, Highland Park and Cutty Sark, as well as Brugal rum and Snow Leopard vodka.

The bar: A centrally positioned island bar with more open space than you’d see in a typical New York spot. It’s designed for tastings, cocktail hours, kicking back and relaxing, and it can hold up to 200 people for events. As far as the drinks go, Edrington has plenty of options to choose from and keeps some rare bottles from The Macallan on hand.

The company: A full-service digital marketing agency that provides clients with web design and development, market strategy consulting, brand development, public relations, and influencer marketing.

The bar: Built by creative director Mitch McKenzie, the bar has three kegs of local beer that the employees get to choose, each with a custom tap handle. A TV is there to stream innings of Dodgers games, and employees gather on Fridays for a “Pour at Four” and to discuss client strategy. The office also has lots of office dogs, which isn’t exactly bar specific, but who doesn’t love an office dog slash office bar dog?

The company: A Chicago restaurant group behind establishments like Prime & Provisions, Public House Chicago, Bombobar and others.

The bar: You’d expect a restaurant group to have a good bar at their corporate office, and in DineAmic’s case, you’d be right. As soon as you step out of the elevator onto DineAmic’s floor you see the bar, which is a gathering place for the employees. Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani works with the company and has been known to drop by with wine, and the corporate sommelier brings over new wines and beers for everyone to sip.

The bar: Working at Night After Night has been named one of the best jobs in New York by Thrillist, and you might as well tack the office bar up there among the reasons why. They hold monthly meetings at the well-stocked bar, as well as public events like vinyl listening sessions, live gigs and random weeknight ragers.
